Hiring trends keep changing with time and after 2020, things have experienced a radical transformation. The events of the past year and a half have impacted the way organizations are identifying talent, recruiting, and onboarding them. The entire model of global executive search has undergone a massive change. New trends that were never thought of, became the new normal. To stay ahead in the dynamic landscape of business, organizations must be aware of these new trends, must adopt them, and continue to implement novel ideas to grow and expand.
Executive search is about identifying and hiring the top executive management for an organization. In other words, it is all about selecting the cream of the leadership or the top management. Here you cannot afford to stay behind or make mistakes. Hence, it is almost imperative that you keep yourself updated with the top trends in global executive search.
Build your brand
Branding is not only about how your clients perceive you. It is also about how present and potential employees perceive your work culture and environment. Do employees feel motivated and valued? Are potential candidates attracted by your work culture and are looking for opportunities to work with you? In the coming years, employees would expect complete transparency across all processes, starting from recruitment. The key is to build your own brand, where you would be known for promoting a conducive, friendly, and supportive work environment
Focus on DIB
DIB stands for diversity, inclusion, and belonging. Have you implemented these facets into your work culture and recruitment processes? In the future, a potential candidate would choose to commit to an organization that promotes diversity, gives equal opportunities to the under-represented communities, and is committed to bringing social change.
Pay attention to employee engagement
The remote model of work has increased mental fatigue, stress, anxiety, and sleep disturbances. Does your company go beyond the traditional means of employee engagement? A prospective candidate would love to know more about his life beyond work and related commitments. Candidates would evaluate your organization against various engagement activities. You need to foster deep collaborations with teams and across so that employees remain engaged and feel deeply valued
Adopt technology in recruitment
The last year has hastened the pace at which this space was adopting technology. A lot of organizations are using AI, chatbots, virtual connecting models for hiring and onboarding. You need to find the digital solutions that would provide the best experience to your prospective candidates. Refine your global executive search strategies while incorporating digital elements into them.
Flexible working model
You should give your employees the flexibility to choose their work models, whether they want to work remotely or from the office, or a mix of both. Giving more freedom to your employees would not only increase their productivity but also enhance your brand image as an employer.
